Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Nurse's empower patients to prevent diabetes by using a nurse-run telehealth program. We are assessing the effectiveness of a nurse-run telehealth initiative using a home monitoring device to assist patients at risk for developing diabetes. Lifestyle changes are taught and reinforced by using telehealth to empower these pre-diabetics. Criteria: Fasting glucose: 100-126 mg/dl or 2 hour postprandial glucose: 140-200 mg/dl. Also 2 or more of following: 1. Abdominal obesity: minimal waist circumference: men 40 inches , women 35 inches 2. Triglycerides : 150 or greater 3. HDL: < 40 for men ,< 50 for women 4. Blood pressure: 130 or greater systolic, 85 or greater diastolic All patients need land line telephone and able to participate in exercise (goal of 150 minutes per week). Patients are given standardized educational regimen including healthy eating strategies, exercise plans and information concerning dangers of diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. Participation is free to the patient and is voluntary. The care coordinator utilizes a low-tech device providing brief daily educational messages and questions regarding their well-being. Periodic weight and blood pressures measurements are entered and data are all uploaded to the monitoring facility without patient intervention. Risk stratification algorithms identify patients at increased risk. These patients receive calls from the care coordinator to obtain more information or assisting the patient. Notes are sent to primary care providers through the computerized medical record system as needed. RESULTS: The first 105 patients over a period of 90 days-120 days: Weight loss 10.014 pounds, BMI decrease 1.769 points and decreased waist measurements 2.253 inches. Additionally, patients show improvements in glucose, triglycerides and HDL readings.
